NASA/GSFC has determined a need for filters for a bipropellant propulsion system. This document and its attachments are for information and planning purposes only to allow industry the opportunity to submit responses describing their relevant capabilities and provide feedback regarding the Europa Propulsion Subsystem Filter technical and programmatic requirements. NASA GSFC is building the propulsion subsystem for the NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory/Applied Physics Laboratory team. The RFP release date is anticipated to be March 2018. The relevant DRAFT documents with the technical requirements and Statement of Work (SOW) are included here as reference: "EUROPA-PROP-SPEC-0012_Draft6_12-20-2017" "EUROPA-PROP-SOW-0012_Draft4_12-20-2017(1)" "EUROPA-PROP-SOW-0012_Draft4_12-20-2017(2)" "EUROPA-PROP-SOW-0012_Draft4_12-20-2017(3)" NASA/GSFC is seeking capability statements from all interested parties that possess the technical capability to provide support for the requirements, including Large, Small, Small Disadvantaged (SBD), 8(a), Woman-owned (WOSB), Veteran owned (VOSB), Service Disabled Veteran Owned (SD-VOSB), Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) businesses, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU)/Minority Institutions (MI) for the purposes of determining the appropriate level of competition and/or small business subcontracting goals for this effort. The Government reserves the right to consider a Small, 8(a), Woman-owned (WOSB), Service Disabled Veteran (SD-VOSB), or HUBZone business set-aside based on response hereto. Additionally, your responses must include the following: name and address of firm, size of business; whether they are Large, Small, SDB, 8(a), WOSB, VOSB, SD-VOSB, HUBZone, and HBCU/MI, and affiliate information; parent company, joint venture partners, and potential teaming partners. Responders are further requested to provide the following additional information: 1. A rough order of magnitude (ROM) cost, with breakdowns for Non-Recurrent Engineering, and Recurrent Engineering, and with breakdowns for any qualification work. A biological assay should be scheduled as requiring a month of time. 2. A capability statement describing your ability to meet the requirements of the SPEC and SOW. A full compliance matrix is not required, but any major exceptions to technical requirements in the SPEC and SOW should be noted in the capability statement, and reference the applicable section in the SPEC or SOW. "Major Exceptions" would be defined as those that significantly impact cost or schedule. The statement should also include details on how the planetary protection requirements can be met, including a discussion of whether these impact the qualification status of the filters. Planetary protection should be costed and scheduled for the maximum bioburden reduction of four orders of magnitude. Companies are reminded that they must be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) (www.sam.gov) to be considered as potential sources. All responses shall be unclassified. Any information provided by industry to the Government as a result of this sources sought synopsis is strictly voluntary. Your responses will not be returned nor will respondents be notified of the results of the evaluation.
